“The fascists already have power. The point is that some way must be found to expose them and combat them. An electoral choice of ten different fascists is like choosing which way one wishes to die. The holder of so called public office is always merely an extension of the hated ruling class. It is to our benefit that this person be openly hostile, despotic, and unreasoning.”

-George L. Jackson

There is absolutely no such thing as the ‘lesser of the evils’.

In the past four years, the United States has (and in most cases is continuing to) intensely bombed to smithereens the peoples of Libya (north Africa), Somalia (east Africa), Afghanistan, Yemen, Pakistan, etc. with Predator-drone missiles and/or aircraft bombing. Bits of body parts of babies, children, women, and men spread across these lands. This is the “hope and change” for which many of you voted, not to mention the U.S. Gulag of torture and imprisonment - called Guantanamo - that remains opened and functioning. This is U.S. ‘democracy’ in action. Can you hear the screams of humanity or do you even care?! Pay attention! Listen to their screams!

This is the Obama death. Death to any and all who oppose the corporate-controlled U.S. Empire!

Thanks goes to the mis-leadership of so many so-called ‘progressives’ and those who claim to be on the ‘left’ in this nation who continue to support this warmongering, predator-drone president. It doesn’t matter to them, even as they write their fancy books and use their complex and shallow rhetoric to subtlety rationalize murder and empire in the very name of opposing it! After all, Barack Obama is black, isn’t he? That makes it all okay, right? Wrong!

Notwithstanding the draconian and unconstitutional NDAA (National Defense Authorization Act), ‘Kill List,’ police-state in this nation itself; this land has descended into the worst state of affairs in its history. But it’s okay because Obama is president. Right? Wrong!!!!

Thanks to the blind color fixation in the U.S. on the part of blacks and non-blacks alike, ‘America’ has intensified in being the monster of the entire world - both internally and externally. But what the hell do you care?! Think about it.

But it’s okay because Obama is president. Right? Wrong!

Those of you who support the Obama brand - this neo-liberal fascist - have blood all over your hands. There is absolutely no such thing as the ‘lesser of the evils,’ as evil abounds in the smooth rhetoric of Barack Obama and that of Mitt Romney. But you have been so dumbed-down that you don’t even get it, do you?

Black America wake up!!! Do not cast your lot with this filthy, hypocritical, corrupt system. Think of your own and humanity and that of the people of Mother Earth! Perhaps, this plea will overwhelmingly fall upon deaf ears. Nevertheless, it has been made. WE MUST GET THIS BLOOD OFF OUR HANDS! 

Each one, reach one. Each one, teach one. Onward, then, my sisters and brothers! Onward! Editorial Board member and Columnist, Larry Pinkney, is a veteran of the Black Panther Party, the former Minister of Interior of the Republic of New Africa, a former political prisoner and the only American to have successfully self-authored his civil / political rights case to the United Nations under the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights. In connection with his political organizing activities in opposition to voter suppression, etc., Pinkney was interviewed in 1988 on the nationally televised PBS News Hour, formerly known as The MacNeil / Lehrer News Hour. For more about Larry Pinkney see the book, Saying No to Power: Autobiography of a 20th Century Activist and Thinker, by William Mandel [Introduction by Howard Zinn].
